“We were happy that the surgery was successful, but he developed cardiac arrest and died moments later.
“The female corps member is getting better, though she is in pains right now. We don’t want to tell her that her colleague is dead because that could worsen her condition.”
 The family of the deceased has taken his remains to his home town for burial and final resting place. Punch ng visited the female survival, Ngozi Oformezie, who also hail from the same state, Anambra,  was reported to be groaning in pains as she cried.

She responded to enquiry about herself;

Another survivor, claimed that it was the grace of God he survived the horrific nightmare, Anuruo, a 40 year old native of Imo state,  also confessed that, his wife and six children had left for his father-inlaw's house on the day the building collapsed.

All efforts by Punch ng to reach the state's commissioner of  police, Chris Eze, for comment on the incident were unfruitful.
